Star Bearer Saga
Anyone who has traveled as far as the other side of the Great Forest would know of the Fauntleroys, the noble family who has ruled those lands for as far back as even the eldest elf remembers.
Unfortunately, they would also most likely know of Oswald Machiavelli Fauntleroy, heir to the throne of the Duchy of Fauntleroy. He is said to be a small minded, venial, spoiled, vain, man-child who is more than willing to throw his considerable political and social weight around to get his way; with absolutely no regard for the well-being of others.
Something seems a bit off about the young man who is now part of your company. . .
